To sum up today’s selection of #MusicEveryday in a few words, they would be “explicitly fucking angry.” Absolution by the Florida based alt.metal band Adrift is a really heavy album. You’d expect that, We guess, considering the engine driving Adrift is the guitarist from Deicide and Cannibal Corpse.
Absolution is pretty far, musically, from Deicide and Cannibal Corpse. Pretty clean vocals, and and fairly straight-up, albeit punchy guitar make for a fist-pumping, head-banging pick-me-up when you need it.
There are a number of bands with the name “Adrift,” and this particular one, AFAWK, only has this one album. Our fave track is track 2, “You Don’t Know Me.” Since we can’t find that one, here’s track 9, called “Departure.”
We hope you’ve enjoyed this edition of #MusicEveryday. If you can find Absolution, grab it. It is well worth the listen. Loudly.
Today is IHOP’s National Pancake Day! Here’s a quote about pancakes. Mmmm, pancakes.
“There is hardship in everything except eating pancakes.”
― Charles Haddon Spurgeon
IHOP restaurants began National Pancake Day in 2006. Since that day, they have raised $24 million for charities. On March 7th, 2017 people from around the country will once again celebrate National Pancake Day at IHOP restaurants and enjoy free pancakes. Guests are asked to consider leaving a donation.
Absolute Zero is an instrumental album filled with prog-rock/metal goodness. Classic, old-school keys, mixed with crunchy djenty guitars, and a jazzy, experimental vibe make for Must-Use-Headphones listening.
Here’s our fave track. Track number 2, the soaring, uplifting “Dark Matter”
We hope you enjoy Tetrafusion, and this album. Coming up next is the album Absolution by the band Adrift.
There’s a hashtag on the various social medias called #MusicMondays. While we think it is terrific that such a hashtag exists, we want to extend it to #MusicEveryday. Music, every day. With that in mind, and to get ourselves back in the habit of sitting in front of this desk every day (ha!), we’re going to throw an album a day at you.
Here’s how it is going to work. We are going to listen to all the albums we have (some 1,100+), in alphabetical order (as listed on our iPod, which, for some reason, means numbers come last), and write something positive about it. One a day. Again, this is mainly to get us back into creation mode, and hopefully, to intro you all to some music you may not have heard.
I hope so. Look, 2016 was some bullshit. All the way to the end. 2017 may be better, but really, the next 4 years are going to be rough. At least if you care about people, and you care about those people having food, and shelter and medicine.
Anyway, it has been a shitty month or so in the macro. Not so bad in the micro.
I wanted to write this to say, let’s get positive! If things are going to be rough, and they probably will be, then we need positivity more than ever. This isn’t to ignore the shitstorm that is coming, but to use as a bulwark against it. A place to come when the fight gets to ya.
I have a couple of large-ish projects to complete here at the +af HQ, projects which are in varying degrees of progress, but when those are finished, We’re coming at 2017 hard with some Good News.
Came across this on the Facebook, and we’re sharing it here because we think it is beautiful. If we could all wrap our heads around the fact that we are all in/on the same boat, so to speak, we’d be better off IOHO. Anyway, it has been viewed almost 5 million times, so chances are you’ve seen it. If you haven’t, enjoy this spectacular vidya!
